- Sign in to WSO2 API-M management console (
https://<Server-Host>:9443/carbon) and select Browse under Resources.
Go to the
/_system/governance/apimgt/applicationdata/workflow-extensions.xmlresource, disable the Simple Workflow Executor, and enable WS Workflow Executor. In addition, specify the service endpoint where the workflow engine is hosted and the credentials required to access the said service via basic authentication (i.e., username/password based authentication).
Code Block language html/xml
<WorkFlowExtensions> ... <ApplicationCreation executor="org.wso2.carbon.apimgt.impl.workflow.ApplicationCreationWSWorkflowExecutor"> <Property name="serviceEndpoint">http://localhost:9765/services/ApplicationApprovalWorkFlowProcess/</Property> <Property name="username">admin</Property> <Property name="password">admin</Property> <Property name="callbackURL">https://localhost:8243/services/WorkflowCallbackService</Property> </ApplicationCreation> ... </WorkFlowExtensions>
All the workflow process services of the BPS run on port 9765 because you changed its default port (9763) with an offset of 2.
The application creation WS Workflow Executor is now engaged.
Go to the API Store, click Applications and create a new application.
It invokes the application creation process and creates a Human Task instance that holds the execution of the BPEL process until some action is performed on it.
You will see the following message saying application details stating "Waiting for approval" if the BPEL is invoked correctly, indicating that the request is successfully submitted.
Also, if you go to the application listing page, you will see the status of the application is stated as "INACTIVE(Waiting for approval)"
Sign in to the Admin Portal (
https://localhost:9443/admin), list all the tasks for application creation and approve the task. It resumes the BPEL process and completes the application creation.
Go back to the Applications page in WSO2 API Store and see the created application.
Whenever a user tries to create an application in the API Store, a request is sent to the workflow endpoint. Given below is a sample:
Code Block language html/xml
<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:wor="http://workflow.subscription.apimgt.carbon.wso2.org"> <soapenv:Header /> <soapenv:Body> <wor:createApplication xmlns:wor="http://workflow.application.apimgt.carbon.wso2.org"> <wor:applicationName>application1</wor:applicationName> <wor:applicationTier>Gold</wor:applicationTier> <wor:applicationCallbackUrl>http://webapp/url</wor:applicationCallbackUrl> <wor:applicationDescription>Application 1</wor:applicationDescription> <wor:tenantDomain>wso2.com</wor:tenantDomain> <wor:userName>user1</wor:userName> <wor:workflowExternalRef>c0aad878-278c-4439-8d7e-712ee71d3f1c</wor:workflowExternalRef> <wor:callBackURL>https://localhost:8243/services/WorkflowCallbackService</wor:callBackURL> </wor:createApplication> </soapenv:Body> </soapenv:Envelope>
Elements of the above configuration are described below:
Name of the application the user creates.
Throttling tier of the application.
When the OAuth2 Authorization Code grant type is applied, this is the endpoint on which the callback needs to happen after the user is authenticated. This is an attribute of the actual application registered on the API Store.
Description of the application
Tenant domain associated with the application (domain of the user creating the application).
Username of the user creating the application.
The unique reference against which a workflow is tracked. This needs to be sent back from the workflow engine to the API Manager at the time of workflow completion.
At the time of workflow completion, the workflow engine sends the workflow-completion request to this URL. This property is configured in the
<callBackURL>element in the
